Family History Intro. & Plan
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Behold, the great day of the Lord is at hand...Let us, therefore, as a church and a people, and as Latter-day Saints, offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness; and let us present in his holy temple, when it is finished, a book containing the records of our dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation.
“I have learned that those who engage in family history research and then perform the temple ordinance work for those
whose names they have found will know
the additional joy of receiving both halves of the blessing.”
- Howard W. Hunter, “A Temple-Motivated People,” Ensign, Feb. 1995
“Thousands of our faithful people seldom go to the temple, and of those who do go, most are not working on their own ancestral lines. They are not saving their own dead. They seem to believe
they are fulfilling their responsibilities by merely attending the temple occasionally. This is simply not so. We all must learn to save ourown dead. We must properly identify them so that we can then perform the work for them in the temples …”
- Spencer W. Kimball, Regional Representatives Seminar, Sept. 30, 1976
